10 YEARS OF PRIDE FROM CITY HALL AND LEGALIZING GAY MARRIAGE TO PRIDE MONTH JUNE2021…. WE WANTED TO SHARE THIS AMAZING HISTORICAL MOMENT CAUGHT BY SARAH MERIANS in 2011
It was July 24th, 2011, when our studio received the amazing news that gay marriage would become legalized in the state of New York! Thousands of couples were flocking down to City Hall to get married!
How could Sarah not grab her camera and go downtown and capture such a historic event?
After all we are in the business of capturing weddings. We believe in the sentiments spread across social media that “Love wins” and “Love is love”. Our amazing sales director, Lisa Brophy hopped in a taxi with Sarah and headed downtown to capture this magical day. Lisa’s college friend Paige worked for CBS and joined us with a camera crew as we all captured incredible footage of all the love, sheer joy, and happiness that day ten years ago.
This is the last day of pride month and a perfect opportunity to share these photos again, ten years later. Every month should be Pride month!
As you look through Sarah’s images, we hope you enjoy them. They capture each couple’s unique style and so much energy and fun. You will see that it does not matter how old you are, the color of your skin, your religion, and any other differences when it comes to love.
Sarah followed two couples up to the alter and captured their marriage vows.
We think you will be proud to be a New Yorker because marriage and equality are for all. We are thrilled to reshare these awesome images. #lovewins #loveislove
